At Southeast Addiction, we offer a variety of programs and services that can accommodate the many different backgrounds our patients come in from. Our most intensive program is the Partial Hospitalization Program. If you have had ongoing addiction-related issues and require a more strict program to usher them into a new life of sobriety.
What is The Partial Hospitalization Program?
The PHP is our strictest program available. This is a great program to enroll in if you or a loved one wishes to embark on the journey of recovery but are lost as to how to even begin. One of the many reasons people are stuck in a life of addiction is because they cannot detach from bad habits, social circles, and the availability/temptation of using. If an addiction has taken hold in someone’s life, chances are that person has developed many convenient ways of supporting that habit. Because of this, it is very difficult to start a new life and become sober.
That is where the PHP comes in. Due to the many hours of contact required for the program (as well as insurance companies in many cases), the majority of people undergoing a PHP choose to stay in sober homes or other such accommodations that are there to provide services and help to those struggling with addiction.
Partial Hospitalization Programs Provide Separation
The biggest advantage to a PHP is that it can be considered a break from the normal. For many people, this can be a very scary and intimidating experience, but don’t worry! Our professional and experienced staff can help you with many aspects of the experience and help you cope with the changes.
Most things that are required for you to do in life are scary. Change makes you stronger, that’s why staying the same is easier. Taking this first step requires a lot of bravery, but we can assure you that many people before you have made that first step and are forever grateful that they did.
Our PHP Covers 5 Important Components
1 – Individual Therapy
Individual therapy is the first thing you might think of when it comes to receiving any kind of treatment for addiction. It’s important for a therapist or addiction counselor to understand your mindstate and why you might be experiencing addiction-related problems. Everyone has different coping mechanisms, stressors, and relapse triggers. What’s more important is that it is entirely possible that they themselves are not aware of them; therapy can help shed light on some of these behaviors so that the patient is able to make more informed choices in the future.
2 – Group Therapy Sessions
Group therapy extends the benefits of individual therapy into a group setting. The chief benefit here is being able to see that you’re not alone and that other people suffer from much the same or similar circumstances as you. Listening to other people discuss their temptations and their day to day struggles makes you realize that people have varying stressors and relapse triggers, but the underlying problem is the same.
3 – Family Sessions
While a feeling of being removed from your ordinary routine is important to developing perspective, your family and friends can still be a part of the counseling process if they wish to. Teaching family and friends what are some of the best ways to care for you without sabotaging your own individual responsibilities is important. Well-meaning friends and family can often have a negative, enabling influence through their attempts to care for someone who is struggling with substance use.
4 – Medication Management
Addiction is often accompanied by comorbid conditions such as anxiety, depression, or other mood-related disorders that can have strong impacts on the characteristics of your addiction. Medicating these conditions properly can help correctly isolate the source of relapse triggers or identify in what way your addiction functions.
